Early Careers Hydrogeologists’ Network (ECHN)

The Early Careers Hydrogeologists’ Network (ECHN) is a network within the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) that initiates, coordinates, supports and champions early career students, researchers and practitioners from over 50 countries. The network was created 10 years ago and has supported hundreds of early career hydrogeologists through the mentorship program, congress events and online reporting and promoting. It is the ethos of the network that all early career hydrogeologists, no matter age, gender, vocation, race, ethnicity or religion, benefit from both the international steering committee’s and national chapter’s support.

It is the goal for IAH 2023 to be an ECH-centric event with pre-congress meetings, social events, competitions, side sessions and a keynote dedicated solely to ECH’s that attend the congress. We also revisit the IAH’s forward look and plan our way forward. Come and join us in Cape Town in 2023 and let’s make the ECHN grow even more.
